Now in its eighth year, the Holiday Sharing Guide for Oxford County is in a new online format to make it easier and faster to get up-to-date information on where to give and get help this holiday season.

The Holiday Sharing Guide, a collaboration between Oxford County, InformationOxford.ca, 211 Ontario, and United Way Oxford, offers a comprehensive listing of gift and clothing drives, hot meal and food programs, and related community events, like collections through Oxford County’s Santa Claus parades. The Guide is organized around options to “give help,” either by donating time, funds or items, or “get help,” by accessing programs offered by community organizations, charities, and local churches.

As an online resource, the Holiday Sharing Guide is easily viewed on a personal computer, tablet or mobile device, and can also be printed from any device. The information in the Guide can also be accessed by calling 211 Ontario (dial 2-1-1).

Check out the Holiday Sharing Guide at www.InformationOxford.ca.

Set your clocks, check your stocks!

Prepare for winter by checking your emergency kit supplies when we fall back November 4

When it’s time to change your clocks next week, use that extra daylight to check your 72-hour emergency preparedness kit.

Oxford County’s Set Your Clocks, Check Your Stocks campaign is reminding people to refresh their emergency supplies now before a disaster occurs. It is important to be prepared as this time of year can bring unpredictable emergencies, including ice storms and power outages.

Make sure your emergency stockpile has enough food, water and supplies to last you and your family for three days. Check that your kit isn’t missing any essential items and replace any expired food. If you have a new pet, don’t forget to add their food and a water bowl, too. 

Ensure your kit has a flashlight with working batteries and, as always, don’t forget to check the batteries in your smoke detectors. Remember, batteries should not go in your curbside garbage. Recycle old or leaky batteries for free at Oxford County Waste Management Facility or Woodstock’s EnviroDepot. Some community centres and municipal buildings also have battery disposal containers.

If you haven’t created an emergency kit yet, now is the time to create one. If you're not sure what to include, check out our full emergency supplies checklist, and read about the top 5 things to do now. Visit oxford72hours.ca to learn more.
